County Executive Calls For New Fees On Water Use To Fight Nitrogen Pollution

No more new regulations or taxes until EPA first acknowledges three major sources of nutrient pollution, that are presently ignored.
1. The lack of nitrogenous (urine and protein) waste treatment in municipal sewage, due to a faulty test, nobody wants to admit, but also is a nutrient pollution. Wp.me/p5COh2-2C
2. Septic tanks do not treat sewage, they only solubilize sewage so it can get into groundwater.
3. The impact of 'green'rain' or rain containing reactive nitrogen (fertilizer), the result of the burning of fossil fuels, the increased use if synthesized fertilizer and increased frequency of lightning storms, the result of global climate change.
When this rain falls on land it stimulates the growth of grasses and brush, that become the kindle wood for the hard to control range and wildfires, during the dry season and when it, either falls directly or indirectly, via runoffs, in water, it stimulates algal growth.
The public, especially the farming communities, should demand that without first acknowledging and quantifying these major nutrient sources, any new regulation should be halted and existing lawsuits dismissed." Apr 26, 16 2:16 PM

Southampton Town Releases Draft Of Water Quality Improvement Plan


The best kept national secrete is that EPA never implemented the CWA, because it used an essential test (BOD) incorrect and not only ignored 60% of this oxygen exerting waste, but all the nitrogenous (urine and protein) waste, while this waste also is a fertilizer for algae. By calling this waste now a nutrient and blaming it mostly on farmers, the public has been successfully kept in the dark.
Therefore no more new regulations or lawsuits until EPA first acknowledges three major sources of nutrient pollution, that are presently ignored.
1. The lack of nitrogenous (urine and protein) waste treatment in municipal sewage, due to a faulty test and also nutrient pollution, partly created by the food produced by farmers. Wp.me/p5COh2-2C
2. Septic tanks do not treat sewage, they only solubilize sewage so it can get into groundwater.
3. The impact of 'green'rain' or rain containing reactive nitrogen (fertilizer), the result of the burning of fossil fuels, the increased use if synthesized fertilizer and increased frequency of lightning storms, the result of global climate change.
When this rain falls on land it stimulates the growth of grasses and brush, that become the kindle wood for the hard to control range and wildfires, during the dry season and when it, either falls directly or indirectly, via runoffs, in water, it stimulates algal growth.
The public, especially the farming communities, should demand that without, first acknowledging and quantifying these major nutrient sources, any new regulation should be halted and existing lawsuits dismissed.

Stony Brook University Receives $5 Million In State Funds For Water Quality Research Efforts

Urine and proteins are organic forms of nitrogen. They first have to become ammonia and than nitrate, but that process requires oxygen. In all these forms they are fertilizer and only when the nitrates converted into nitrogen gas, is the nitrogen in sewage treated. Hence nitrification requires free oxygen, while the denitrification process requires anoxic (no free oxygen) conditions and a carbon food source. A process already hard to create in sewage treatment plants, but questionable in filters under ground.
Of course to can remove nitrogen also by using this fertilizer, by growing vegetation. The problem here is what to do with the vegetation, since vegetation (food) caused the problem in the first place.
Then we also have green rain or rain containing reactive nitrogen (fertilizer), the result of the burning of fossl fuels, use of synthesized fertilizer and increased frequency of lightning.
But the main question should be, why do all this when the same waste in sewage is not required to be treated under the CWA? Wp.me/p5COh2-2C
Before any more taxpayer's money is wasted, EPA should be forced to implement the CWA as it as intended and promised.
